I have struggled to find a solution to this on the forum and wondered if anyone could help. I have seen many people mention this on the internet but not found a solution
I have recently joined VM 100 in modem mode and I use a VPN all the time personal and work.The VPN is at device level and I have an OPENWRT router connected to the modem. The VPN is clearly being throttled. I have tested multiple providers, protocols, and devices and its usually between 30 - 50 Mbps. I can see other posts about this but no solutions usually just someone saying its due to the VPN but I know this isnt the case. (I have also tested with another home broadband and LTE device and these work fine).
Does anyone know how I can fix the issue? according to my research they are throttling the OpenVPN protocol. I am considering trying wireguard to see if this protocol is also throttled. Any ideas or suggestions would be a great help, are they allowed to throttle specific traffic ?
you will never get full speeds over VPN, this has been a thing since ever. thats why you have not found a solution because there is not one, ppl using a vpn for whatever reason are resigned to the speed they get. the routing of your vpn has an effect on speed too.
